Cowes Week 'is an iconic event'

A sailing regatta in the Isle of Wight has been hailed as an internationally iconic event.

The high praise came from technical sailing clothing specialist Gill, which has signed up to sponsor Cowes Week.

Nick Gill, founder of the company, said it is extremely proud to be associated with an event of this calibre and is looking forward to working with the Cowes Week team.

Michelle Warner, sales and marketing director at Cowes Week Limited, was equally positive about the new sponsorship deal.

"We are really excited about working in partnership with Gill and increasing the value we are able to offer participants," she commented.

Cowes Week has become one of the longest-running and most successful sporting events in the UK since it was first staged back in 1826.

This comes after the RNLI was named as the official charity for Cowes Week for the second consecutive year.

Money raised at the international sailing regatta will go towards its three lifeboat stations on the Isle of Wight, which are located at Cowes, Bembridge and Yarmouth.
